Should the contract be any different when hiring a system administrator instead of a programmer?
The sysadmin I want to hire wants a clause in the contract that says he will license me (perpetual, royalty-free, non-transferable) any work he creates for me and that he reserves the right to open-source such work if it would not disclose confidential information, reduce competitive advantage, or otherwise pose a risk for either of us.
He says he wants to be able to re-use or open-source monitoring tools, templates, or modules, and I think that's fine. What do you think?
